Joe Don Brandon, 57, was Fort Worth's most well known homeless person.
Every year Joe Don would put on his Santa Claus outfit and stand on overpasses on I-35, waving at passing vehicles.
Joe Don frequently showed up at Fort Worth City Council meetings, chastising the city for not righting the wrongs he saw on the streets of Fort Worth.
Joe Don's body was found Thursday inside the non air-conditioned rental locker storage shed he called home.
Fort Worth's former mayor, Mike Moncrief said, "Joe Don did make a difference with his weekly messages of criticism. And on occasion, rare occasion, compliments."
Fort Worth homeless people gathered under the shade of a Lancaster Avenue tree Friday to share memories of Joe Don Brandon.
